Phase 2’s in 12 hours! (Except it isn’t.) Jane grabs files and a phone which have “accidentally” been left in her orbit! (Except they haven’t.) Before Kurt and Co can storm in and crack Sandstorm heads, Allie’s hurt in a terrible accident! (Except she isn’t.) Connor phones Kurt! (Except he doesn’t.) And Dr Borden’s a very honest man who would never….
Yeah, I think you know where I’m going with this.
This week’s frantic Blindspot has everyone on the Joint Tat Task Force falling for every trick possible; from Jane not even questioning the sudden and magical appearance of everything she needs to lure the team to Big Trap Farm, to Kurt not registering how much of a coincidence it is that he’s suddenly needed in a hospital across town when he’s just about to do his Big Man on the Task Force thing and Shut. Sandstorm. Down, to Patterson not realising that a charming, handsome, incredibly sweet man who brings you breakfast in bed at the beginning of an episode of procedural drama is either a mole or a goner by the end of it. Or perhaps both.
It’ll take more than a building falling down on them to bring down the JTTF though: Kurt races back to dig everyone out with his bare hands, Kalinda and Reade almost die a couple of times but nope, and if anybody out of the main cast might not make it past this week, well it’s not going to be Patterson is it?
(NB – it had better NOT be.)
Luckily for the JTTF, of course, Sandstorm isn’t quite as rock solid as Shepherd thinks; turns out Jane’s instincts about Roman are at least half right – she can’t turn him, but he can’t wholly turn against her, either, which means bro and sis end up on the run from everyone, and Jane does something so completely ludicrous but so utterly Blindspotty that I would have clapped my hands had they not been busy holding my head at the time. This episode was insane. Super-exciting and fun, but also crazy bonkers. Which is absolutely what you want from Blindspot, so I’m definitely not complaining.
